Lenovo showed off their ThinkPad X1 Hybrid laptop at CES in Las Vegas, which evolves the veritable ThinkPad X1 hardware by giving the laptop more juice time in between charges thanks to two separate processors and a secondary OS. Thanks to an instant on mode, the Lenovo X1 Hybrid can go for 10 hours of run time on a single charge.
On the surface, the Hybrid resembles the vanilla Thinkpad X1. However, on the inside, you have up to an Intel Core i7 processor powering Windows 7. Additionally, the instant-on Instant Media Mode, which can be used for media, is powered by an Android-based OS to be a bit more conservative on the OS if you don’t need specialized Windows programs, and utilizes a more power-efficient ARM-based Qualcomm dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor. On the Instant Media Mode side, there is also 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage.
The 13.3-inch notebook weighs 3.73 pounds. The system has a rapid charge feature that allows you to quickly charge to 80% in just 30 minutes.
